It's official! I am a new member of the Karen Foster Design Team! I am completely thrilled to be working with some incredibly talented people such as my dear friends Maryfrances Fabbri and Carolyn Lontin.

Scrapbook {Express}ions: Gettin' Krafty!

It's challenge day at the Scrapbook {Express}ions blog, and it's all about using kraft. Come play along!

I used three sets of myStampBOX stamps on this layout. I used the a ring from Funky Circles to circle some words on the background paper. I used the arrow from Road Trip to point out the circled text and an important photo. I also used the Mini Alpha set to help journal some of the details about the photos. This might be my most-used set of alphabet stamps from myStampBOX - they are so great!

Come play along at Scrapbook Express. Our monthly prize is a store gift certificate, and who wouldn't want to win that? Happy scrapping!

myStampBOX: Card Inspiration

Fellow myStampBOX design team member Tracey Taylor recently posted this super cute card using products from our partner companies Kiki Art and Helmar. I knew that I needed a birthday card for a little girl we know, so I decided to put my own spin on this card.

I chose a different girl and hot air balloon from the Kiki Art paper and handstamped the greeting using the Lines of Life set of myStampBOX stamps. I loved Tracey's idea of adding stamped clouds to the card to match the background paper, so I decided to add a bit more texture. I adhered white felt to white cardstock and stamped some clouds from Wishing You Sunshine onto the cardstock backing. I handcut the clouds and adhered them to the card front, layering the hot air balloon over the top. I love how this card turned out, and the birthday girl loved it, too. Inspiration is everywhere, just keep your eyes open!
